About Us: 

Bantaba is a funding and knowledge platform for African tech startups. Despite a 22% entrepreneurship rate, 70% of startups in Africa lack access to talent and capital. This is the problem we are addressing.

Our digital platform enables African Startups to access knowledge and capital from the African community living outside of Africa (the “diaspora”). We match Startups with diaspora mentors, consultants and investors. Bantaba is part of the SSE Business lab and we were finalists in the Shift Capital competition.
